Orleans vs Le Havre
France – Ligue 2
Date: Friday, 8th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Source (Orléans).
The Dean Club’s future looks promising as they are nurturing young talents and giving them opportunities. This season, all of that is paying off in a good manner, as they sit just outside the top six. On the other hand, Orleans looks a bit shaky in the latter half of the season.
Le Havre has been one of the consistent defensive units in the league, conceding 0.9 goals per match. Oswald Tanchot and his group of players lost only 5 matches and showed others how to protect the lead after scoring goals. Alimani Gory has been spearheading the forward line with 7 goals and 2 assists. The Sky-and-Navy always play compact defense and break forward using counter-attacks.
Orleans always play through the right wing, most crosses coming from the right-hand side. They are also good at breaking the play using silly tackles and fouls. Didier Olle-Nicolle and his troops are one of the weak defensive units in the League, conceding 33 goals. This has been their main area of concern.

The away side will be in song as they face their opponents. The solid defensive units of Sky-and-Navy will shut the shop for the home side in front of the goal post. Le Havre has quality up front, which will enable them to take 3 points away from this match.
The home team’s leaky defense will be once again put to task by the opposition. Orleans will concede goals in this match for sure, as their opponent has the firepower up-top. Previous meetings between these two also suggest the same.
